RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The investigation was carried out by Mercy for Animals to pressure Congress to approve a bill banning the sale of live animals for slaughter in other countries.
The footage shows how animals are brutally handled in some major importing countries. In the images, animals often show being hoisted by the hoof.
There are also videos showing animals having their necks and tendons cut while they are still conscious, being stabbed, getting kicked and having their tails violently twisted.
